Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP Partner David Wolfe was inducted into the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel during the organization’s annual induction dinner ceremony Nov. 5 in Seattle. 

Wolfe, a member of the firm’s Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Practice Group, focuses his practice on representing and advising tax-exempt organizations in a range of benefits issues, including tax-qualified plans and executive compensation.  He is a prolific speaker and writer, having been published in a variety of industry magazines and journals.  He has also coauthored three chapters in the Health Care Industry volume published through the CCH Tax Transactions Library.

Wolfe also focuses on U.S. benefits for international clients, global stock arrangements, reducing ERISA litigation and fiduciary liability exposure, cash balance and other hybrid pension arrangements, legal compliance reviews, executive compensation, incentive pay arrangements and the corporate governance of benefit plans.

To be named a fellow of the counsel, an individual must have at least 20 years of practicing experience.  Further, the individual must be generally recognized by his or her peers and have a history of demonstrating exemplary character and a sustained commitment to the development and pursuit of public awareness and understanding of employee benefits law. 

Wolfe joins fellow Drinker Biddle partners Fred Reish and David R. Levin as fellows in the organization.
